The highly anticipated sequel to THE LEGACY has dropped! It is here and I cannot be more excited!




I hope you all enjoy this. It is my favorite book out of the trilogy. I worked really, really hard on this one. So much so I pushed it back TWICE. A lot of people thought I was making a mistake by putting it out later, but I’m glad I listened to my gut. You all deserve a complete novel. I can honestly say that I am proud of this book. Being an unintentional self-published author has been a really tough ride for me. A few highs and lots of lows but I am praying that it will all pay off one day.

Anyway, please remember to read, rate, recommend and review THE MISSING! I appreciate you all so much!

(If you haven’t read THE LEGACY, it is 99 cents on Amazon Kindle until 12/31! Get caught up!)





Book Blitz: The Book of Ivy


The Book of Ivy

by Amy Engel

Release Date: 11/4/2014

Published by: Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:

After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.

This year, it is my turn.

My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power.

But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.

Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…

“Are you ready to go?” Bishop asks me. “I don’t think I can stand one more handshake.”

I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. Part of me wishes I could just kill him right here and now. Grab the knife off the cake table and bypass all the steps in between, jump straight to the final result. “Yes,” I say. “I need to say good-bye to my family.”

Bishop nods and I breathe a sigh of relief when he doesn’t follow me. I want to say my farewells in private.

“Well,” I say, once I’m next to my father and Callie again. “This is it.”

“You can do this,” Callie says. Her hand grabs mine and squeezes until my bones grind together. “He’s good looking. He seems nice enough.” Her sneering voice belies her words. “Just get through it. Get through tonight and tomorrow will be easier. I promise.”

But how can she promise me that? She is not the one who has to go home to a strange house with a strange boy and let him…

My father catches my gaze. “Remember the plan,” he says, voice barely a whisper. “And remember I love you.”

I can count on one hand the number of times he’s said that to me. I don’t doubt his love, but a bitter, angry part of me I try hard to silence questions what that love is tied to—my obedience, my allegiance, my success? Will he still love me if I fail?

I nod, lips pressed together, because I’m not sure what will come out if I open my mouth.

The Silence of Six

by E.C. Myers

Release Date: 11/5/14

Summary from Goodreads:

“What is the silence of six, and what are you going to do about it?”


These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend, Evan: Just moments after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school, he kills himself.


Haunted by the image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world turns upside down as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting to prove his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions.


Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances, and virtual identities — all while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.

“Listen, kid, I don’t care what you believe in. It’s not for me to say what’s true and untrue, real or unreal. My assignment was you. You get to be one of us, if you want it. Otherwise, you move on, life is over, kaput.”

Ophelia backed away from the stranger. For the first time, she realized she didn’t feel cold and wasn’t shivering. Is this what being dead was like? “One of you?”

“A grim reaper.” He held out his hand to properly introduce himself. “Edon Montgomery, head reaper and old soul.”
